A Study on a Novel Vibrating Conveyor


Article Preview

The purpose of this study is to present a novel concept for inline vibrating conveyors, and verify its feasibility by kinematic simulation. First, new conveyor is presented, and its merits are discussed. Then, its kinematically equivalent linkage is described. Moreover, the kinematic dimensions are investigated from its geometry. Finally, the solid model for the proposed design is established, then kinematic simulation is performed by ADAMS software. The simulation results indicate that the proposed new design can effectively advance the workpiece.
